To many programs may be starting on bootup. I am asumming you not formiluar with the registry so try this program. hijackthis (one word) it's a free program, just download it from the web. after installing and runing it, check all program except your antivius and spyware programs. this program finds all software that starts when you turn on your pc. then hit fix checked. the program will stop al those programs from starting automatically. If you dodnt want to do this yourself. go to and I can remote into your pc and do it for you

How to reset memory

When ever the engine electrical has been disconnected for a while such as while you are doing some major work on the engine and you disconnect the battery or even if you switch engines the computer will need to relearn the driving habits so to speak. Start the vehicle and let idle for five minutes the put the vehicle in gear and slowly pull out. Drive in a gentle way for 5- 10 miles then slowly you increase the speed. do not just romp into it. It can take several days of normal driving before the computer has relearned the driver information. I take a nice drive through the neighbor hood stopping at stop signs slowly speeding up and slowing down before I go out on the high way. I then take about a 50 mile trip where the speed limits vary from 40 to interstate speed. Once the computer has completed the relearning it will idle and drive smoother for you. Hope this helps.

My computer is too slow - how do I make it faster?

Slow Start Up
There can be a variety of reasons to Windows loading slow during start up. Go to Run, type msconfig and hit enter. Under the 'Start Up' tab, uncheck the unwanted programs and press OK. Things should be a bit fine the next time Windows boots.
Another program worth mentioning here is StartUp Delayer which will help in setting after how much time programs should be loaded after Windows boots. For instance, you could set your instant messenger program to load 50 seconds after Windows starts up.
Slow Loading Start Menu
If the Start Menu items are loading slowly, you can open the Registry Editor by typing in the Run menu 'regedit.exe' and pressing Enter. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop. Look for MenuShowDelay, and double click to edit the value. The lower the number specified, the faster the Start Menu will load.
Slow Right Click Context Menu
Probably the Windows Right Click menu on your computer is loading slow because too many programs added unwanted entries there. Just download this program called Mmm, install it and then modify your context menu to remove unwanted items to speed it up.
win-fixes-send-to.jpg Slow Send To Menu
If the Send To menu loads slowly, you can type 'sendto' in the Run Dialog, and remove unwanted items in the Explorer Window that appears. This should add some speed to it.

Slow Defragmentation
The Windows Defragmenter can't get any slower. You need to have an alternative to the Windows Defragmenter, and Defraggler is just one of the best ones available in the market. It's free, and works like a charm and can speed up defragmentation manifold. For some alternatives, see Five Free Programs to Defragment your PC.

I just replaced my mother Board. but it wont charge my battery. and my systems operates slows

There is a good chance the battery on your computer is dead and that is why it will not charge. Also check your charger for any physical damage as that also can lead to issues. As for why your computer loads up slowly, you could be infected with a virus. Download the two softwares below and run them. Make sure to boot into safe mode with networking (Press F8 as the computer boots, if you see the windows flag than you missed it and need to try again). They should find some threats and removed them. This should speed up your computer. Also, try going into system recovery (Press F8 again) and click "Repair my computer" click open command prompt and type "chkdsk C: /r" and let it run. Once done, restart your computer and you should be set.

Working slowly

download CCleaner. It will delete stuff you dont need, this should help clean things up and speed up your system. At the same time you should uninstall unwanted applications and delete files you dont need.

Did a recovery but computers still running slow. I would like to try a reinsall what do I got to do. to preform this. HP Pavilion Media Center a1600n

Running slowly could be a lot of things. It could be you don't have enough physical memory (RAM) in your computer to do what you want. Less than 1 or 2 GB might be seen as slow. If you really want to reinstall Windows, back up all the files you want to save to someplace else, like an external hard drive or thumb drive. You will have to reinstall all your programs (Office, etc) after you reinstall Windows. Take the CD copy of Windows that came with your computer and boot your computer to that. You may have to change the boot order by entering Setup (usually by pressing F2 when it starts). Make sure the CD drive is first in Boot Order. When you boot to the CD follow the instructions for installing Windows in the screens which follow. Delete any existing partitions and install it on a clean partition.
Good luck!

Takes 30 minutes after booting to achieve max speed.

thyere is a trade off for addon programs like super clocks big date stamp skype MSN and lots of other junk that gets put in startup taskbar. your compter must sound like a babies rattle when it starts ( grin) uninstall some of the ones less used. McCaffee slows the pc down to a stall most times, so maybe you might want to considereebie AVG.

If you use XP go to ctrl panel and also defragment your disk ( but only after you have cleaned out some of the junk by uninstall) this will help it to startup faster. You may also want to invest in an registry cleaner to remove more of the stuff that uninstall does not remove.
hope this helps you
